For a more complex fragrance (with a bit of spice), spritz on Harvey Prince Temptress.

Harvey Prince

Birchbox Breakdown

When someone gives us flowers (hint hint), we often find one well-chosen bloom even sweeter than a full bouquet. So it’s no surprise we can’t stop sniffing this single-blossom fragrance from Harvey Prince: It showcases the pure aroma of gardenia, without layering in any additional scents to muddle things up—though we’d never call a fragrance this alluring one note.

How it Works

Whether blooming in a garden or unfolding in a fragrance, the smell of gardenias is like that of a sultry summer evening: floral, warm, and sweet—with a bit of enticing darkness.

How to Use

Spritz onto pulse points in the morning. This fragrance is so long-lasting, that should be enough to last the day.

Alcohol Denatured (40B), Fragrance, Water, Benzyl Benzoate, Linalool, Citronellol, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hydroxycitronellal, Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal

Another Great One from Harvey Prince!
Sampled

I love Harvey Prince fragrances for their bold scents that last throughout the day. Floral scents are not my first choice for fragrances; however, anyone who does prefer floral fragrances will absolutely love this! Smells just like it sounds (Gardenia) ;).

Smells bad

Smells like I would imagine a mother in law to smell like, basically smells like a middle aged women perfume.

I love the other Harvey Prince scents, Hello and Ageless; Hello being my favorite.But this scent is very "old lady" and strong.

Pretty smell

Pretty smell, but would probably get tired of it after a minute or two. Really does smell like Gardenias though, so if you like floral scents, this one is for you

I'm not a fan of this smell. It's a little too strong for me and a more mature smell. I prefer Daisy by Marc Jacobs or maybe even Lovestruck by Vera Wang is as strong as I go.

A little for the elder generation in my opinion.
Sampled

This perfume smells like my grandma and in a good way! It is so familiar I loved it. It smells incredibly strong though... a little too much for me. I did love the spray sample though. I would like to maybe purchase this for one of my great aunts or something for this upcoming easter sunday.

I'm not a fan of gardenia scent. Also the scent wears off so fast and I don't care for the after-scent either

If you like flowers…

I'm not a gardenia girl or a floral scent girl but my BFF was in love with this particular scent so I actually gave a sample to her so I base it off of her opinion. I guess if you want to smell like a gardenia tree it's all good
